It's that time of year again where the sun shines a little brighter, a little longer and we're a little happier. This is also the time that we let our curly hair swing free in the wind. With that, our hair is more susceptible to the elements. Wind feels great but can have a drying effect on already moisture challenged hair. Exposure to direct sunlight can also have a drying effect. Temperature fluctuations due to seasonal changes also means a transitional period for your hair. Spring time rain showers leaves your hair exposed to a constant shift in air moisture from going back and forth between indoor air and outdoor air. This then puts your tresses in a moisture deficit that can be hard to detect until the damage is already done.
This is a great time to get a deep conditioning treatment and a trim just to remove any split or damaged ends. Also bumping up your moisture balance routine, paying extra attention to the last two inches of your hair, will be a gift that keeps on giving. When making shifts to you hair care regimen it's always good to take a look at what worked for you last year at this time. If you're one of those people that just don't remember details like that keeping a hair journal will be beneficial to you. One page for each season summing up what products worked well, how you used it and any challenges you may have had during that season will help you get on track quickly. Also, remember to take into account any changes in your hair like length, color enhancement and heat styling usage. Life changes like residence change, pregnancy and stress level increase can result in a shift in texture and/or dryness level as well.
Having a good cut is essential especially for curly hair. The right hair cut will complement your features and create a shape that is consistent with your personal style. The added criteria for cutting curly hair is to maximize length, remove bulk and to help the hair fall in a complimentary way. With a good cut half of the battle is over.
Finding the right conditioning treatment for your hair can be both a daunting and rewarding adventure. That's why we've created three conditioning options to help address different curly needs and textures. We have Creme de la Creme, which is a light conditioning treatment for normal to oily hair types. This conditioning cream will help condition and detangle your hair.
